So I got rear ended this past weekend (4th of july weekend) and now my rear bumper needs to be replaced. Im assuming they don't come painted and Im pretty sure the paint is gonna look off compared to the rest of the car. Ive heard horror stories of shops not being able to match the paint (Hemi Orange) and I really don't wanna deal with having to return to the shop to have things touched up or repainted, etc etc.
You guys might say that any reputable shop should be able to do the work but to be honest with you I don't wanna take the gamble and would rather save myself the headache. Im the type of person that washes his own car because I am very ocd about it, much less paint. I have to live with the car and don't wanna see two shades of HO everyday.
Im considering wrapping the whole car, maybe a matte black or Frozen Grey (BMW type color) to avoid the whole paint matching. Ive been thinking about doing this for quite some time and figured now would be the best time.
I would just have the other persons insurance cut me a check and then I order the parts and have the car wrapped with the extra money and Im sure I'll have to put some money down on my part, but at least it'll be a bit cheaper.
For those of you who have done it, how much? hows the vinyl and color holding up? any other details you could share would be great.
